Class StAXStreamOutputter

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.jdom2.output.StAXStreamOutputter
All Implemented Interfaces:
java.lang.Cloneable

public final class StAXStreamOutputter
extends java.lang.Object
implements java.lang.Cloneable

Outputs a JDOM document as a StAX XMLStreamWriter of bytes.

The StAXStreamOutputter can manage many styles of document formatting, from untouched to 'pretty' printed. The default is to output the document content exactly as created, but this can be changed by setting a new Format object:

All of the output*(...) methods will flush the destination XMLStreamWriter before returning, and none of them will close() the destination.

To omit output of the declaration use Format.setOmitDeclaration(boolean). To omit printing of the encoding in the declaration use Format.setOmitEncoding(boolean).

If changing the Format settings are insufficient for your output needs you can customise this StAXStreamOutputter further by setting a different StAXStreamProcessor with the setStAXStreamProcessor(StAXStreamProcessor) method or an appropriate constructor. A fully-enabled Abstract class AbstractStAXStreamProcessor is available to be further extended to your needs if all you want to do is tweak some details.

Constructor Detail

StAXStreamOutputter

public StAXStreamOutputter(Format format,
                           StAXStreamProcessor processor)
This will create an StAXStreamOutputter with the specified format characteristics.

Note: the format object is cloned internally before use. If you want to modify the Format after constructing the StAXStreamOutputter you can modify the Format instance getFormat() returns.

Parameters:
format - The Format instance to use. This instance will be cloned() and as a consequence, changes made to the specified format instance will not be reflected in this StAXStreamOutputter. A null input format indicates that StAXStreamOutputter should use the default Format.getRawFormat()
processor - The XMLOutputProcessor to delegate output to. If null the StAXStreamOutputter will use the default XMLOutputProcessor.

StAXStreamOutputter

public StAXStreamOutputter()
This will create an StAXStreamOutputter with a default Format and XMLOutputProcessor.


StAXStreamOutputter

public StAXStreamOutputter(Format format)
This will create an StAXStreamOutputter with the specified format characteristics.

Note: the format object is cloned internally before use.

Parameters:
format - The Format instance to use. This instance will be cloned() and as a consequence, changes made to the specified format instance will not be reflected in this StAXStreamOutputter. A null input format indicates that StAXStreamOutputter should use the default Format.getRawFormat()

StAXStreamOutputter

public StAXStreamOutputter(StAXStreamProcessor processor)
This will create an StAXStreamOutputter with the specified XMLOutputProcessor.

Parameters:
processor - The XMLOutputProcessor to delegate output to. If null the StAXStreamOutputter will use the default XMLOutputProcessor.
Method Detail

setFormat

public void setFormat(Format newFormat)
Sets the new format logic for the StAXStreamOutputter. Note the Format object is cloned internally before use.

Parameters:
newFormat - the format to use for subsequent output
See Also:
getFormat()

getFormat

public Format getFormat()
Returns the current format in use by the StAXStreamOutputter. Note the Format object returned is not a clone of the one used internally, thus, an StAXStreamOutputter instance is able to have it's Format changed by changing the settings on the Format instance returned by this method.

Returns:
the current Format instance used by this StAXStreamOutputter.

getStAXStream

public StAXStreamProcessor getStAXStream()
Returns the current XMLOutputProcessor instance in use by the StAXStreamOutputter.

Returns:
the current XMLOutputProcessor instance.

setStAXStreamProcessor

public void setStAXStreamProcessor(StAXStreamProcessor processor)
Sets a new XMLOutputProcessor instance for this StAXStreamOutputter. Note the processor object is expected to be thread-safe.

Parameters:
processor - the new XMLOutputProcesor to use for output

output
